Choosing a Law Firm can be overwhelming and even intimidating.
Here are 6 Reasons to Choose Anja Klinkert Lawyer & Mediator To Assist You:
My full name is Anja Karen Evelyn Klinkert. I was born and raised until aged almost 16 years in what was then West Germany. I have been in New Zealand since 1982 and in Dunedin since 1984. I have a varied work history outside of the law, including unpaid volunteer work, working as a linguist and bone carving. Since 1996 I have been working as a lawyer, firstly in practice as a barrister working mainly at the District and Family Courts in both civil and criminal litigation, then as a staff solicitor and later partner at Kirkland Lawyers. I started out in my own business in 2002 following the dissolution of the Kirkland Lawyers' partnership. Since 2010 I have been working as a mediator (trained by Resolution Institute and AMINZ and accredited as a mediator panel member by Resolution Institute & IAMA). I have also trained as a collaborative lawyer and am a member of Collaborative Advocacy New Zealand (CANZ). I represent clients in the employment jurisdictions, the Family, District and High Courts. I strongly believe in working closely with my clients in order to empower them to find the most authentic solution for them to the problem at hand by offering my services as general lawyer / litigator, collaborative lawyer or mediator.
I enjoy being in business in Dunedin in particular due to the friendly and co-operative work environment. I am part of a great team at Hope Street, which includes our four legged office junior, Martin. I enjoy a varied practice of the law that sees me in daily contact with our clients presenting me with both professional and academic challenges as well as the opportunity to grow on a personal level. I love living in Dunedin.
